Wedding Book of memories and emotions
Photography is a virtual memory until it is printed, and my wedding photography service philosophy is a story line with pictures to be viewed in its entirety. Each photograph has its own esthetics but it assumes an emotional and symbolic significance when it is part of a wedding reportage. For this I feel that the best way to complete the photography project is to create a photography book.
My wedding book
My wedding book contains a program of top quality fine art paper prints perfectly bound, essential and aimed at enhancing the photography project.
Despite leaving clients free to express their preferences, they generally do not like graphics and heavy covers: I imagine a wedding book fitting perfectly into your bookshelves, looked at and browsed frequently and not stuffed in a drawer and forgotten. In terms of its creation, I will determine the photography project based on the moments and images the couples are most connected to, to be reviewed based on your tastes. Printing is done only after your approval of the final draft.
My albums are created entirely by hand, with top quality Hahnemuhle craft paper, I print them directly after a lengthy color correction and retouch job on each photo. The specialness of my albums lies in the direct binding of the prints, without the use of glue or applications of a board core, based on the concept of high end manuscripts.
After a long search, I found craftsmen able to create perfect manual bindings, using very top quality materials for the covers and packages, such as unique pieces of full-grain leather and prime fabrics with vegetable dyes. This production process performed entirely by hand and without any mechanical means requires time and accuracy (on average at least 1 week for the pre-printing phase and 1 for binding), resulting in a unique gift for the couple, just like the value of their memories, certified to remain unaltered for decades.
An artistic diary of your memories to give to yourselves and others
The conclusive highlight to the photography project of your ceremony, the wedding book, is a gift to give yourselves as a couple, to store your memories and emotions in a valuable container. Often it is gift that witnesses, relatives or friends select for the bride and groom. Created for the wedding, our handcrafted album is also appropriate for a couple or engagement photography service.
Fine Art Prints
Photography does not exist until it is transformed into a print. Currently, in the middle of the digital age, the concept of printing has almost disappeared, but we love to propose it for special occasions like wedding photography services. A digital file is simply a virtualization of a photographic image: it can become one of an infinite variety of possibilities: toned, black and white. Thanks to my academic and professional background in analog and digital photographic printing, I have decided to undertake the production of fine art prints to complete my photography work and exclusively for our clients.
I have selected the best fine arts papers used in fine arts and I personally follow all of the post production, pre-printing and printing phases, to elevate every picture to the status of a unique product, realized in limited edition with authenticity certificate.
What is Fine Art Photography?
My starting point is artistic intent, a focus on the composition, colors and real contrasts, that can only take shape if the image is printed on paper that interprets it to the maximum.
Over the years I have conducted countless searches in the unlimited world of photographic paper and I have learned to appreciate the material, texture, exquisite reproduction of colors and changes in color.
I chose a selection of papers entirely in cotton fibers that I found more exciting visually and to the touch to be able to offer my clients a real sensory and moving experience. I decided not to accept compromises and all of our production is created on Hahnemuhle papers for fine art reproduction and I print with Epson inks and printers. Hahnemuhle is a symbol of artistic photography, a guarantee for the best rendering of the picture.
My printing is treated with Hahnemuhle coating which guarantees that the color and whiteness will remain unaltered for 150 years: your memories will be safe for a few generations. All of my prints are accompanied by a Hahnemuhle artistic uniqueness certificate, they are mounted on paperboard or mat and placed in an elegant wooden container.
Experience the emotions of fine art prints
Your wedding, engagement or couple service, in our project are created to become fine art prints to keep in a treasured wooden box. You can select the prints to give to friends and relatives together, possibly enlarged in special formats, and possibly create a wedding book, with the certainty that the prints I create on Hahnemuhle fine arts paper are the best form for your memories.
